OK, I went through the patch and the main intention is was added.
So I will begin by summarizing my understanding:

A new suspend interface(/sys/power/mem_sleep) is added to allow the
"mem" string in /sys/power/state to represent multiple things that can
be selected.

A. echo freeze > /sys/power/state ---> Enters s2idle
B. echo mem > /sys/power/state ---> Enters s2r(a.k.a now deep mem sleep)

1. echo freeze > /sys/power/state ---> Enters s2idle still same
2. echo s2idle > /sys/power/mem_sleep
echo mem > /sys/power/state ---> Also enter s2idle
3. echo deep > /sys/power/mem_sleep
echo mem > /sys/power/state ---> Also enter s2r(same as [B] above)

Please note I have carefully dropped standby/shallow as we will not
support that state on ARM64 platforms(refer previous discussions for the

Now IIUC, you need 2 above. So, since this new interface allow mem to
mean "s2idle", we need to fix the core to register default suspend_ops
to achieve what you need. And since I now better understand you problem,
you get extra NACK for this series ;)
